A Man of Honour


Oxford University Press

As Napoleon moved eastwards in pursuit of Prussians and as the Prussian state crumbled, a widespread national outburst seized much of Prussian Poland and even affected Galicia. This chapter describes the arrival of Napoleon in Poland, which spurred Czartoryski to raise the Polish issue, where Poland was the theatre of war, was the most critical factor in Russian policy. In his new campaign to force Alexander's hand on the Polish issue Czartoryski received help from his close Russian friends who seized this opportunity to recover some of their lost influence in the imperial counsels. In July 1808, the Prince's enmity towards Napoleon was more intense than ever, and his loyalty to Alexander and Russia unimpeachable.
